    Simon & Garfunkel was an American folk rock duo consisting of singer-songwriter Paul Simon and singer Art Garfunkel. They were one of the most popular recording artists of the 1960s and became counterculture icons of the decade's social revolution, alongside artists such as the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and Bob Dylan. Their biggest hits—including "The Sound of Silence" (1964/1965), "Mrs. Robinson" (1968), "Bridge over Troubled Water" (1969), and "The Boxer" (1969)—reached number one on singles charts worldwide. Their often rocky relationship led to artistic disagreements, which resulted in their breakup in 1970. Their final studio record, Bridge over Troubled Water, was their most successful, becoming one of the world's best-selling albums. Since their split in 1970 they have reunited several times, most famously in 1981 for the "The Concert in Central Park", which attracted more than 500,000 people, the seventh-largest concert attendance in history.


    Paul Simon's mustache -hahaha.

    Essential Albums; Bridge Over Troubled Water is an all time classic. Work backwards from there.

    It's really hard for me to pick between Bookends and Bridge Over Troubled Water for their best album. Thankfully, I don't have to.

    "Baby Driver" is one of my top good mood songs

    Yeah I'm not sure how to choose between those two. "Cecilia" will always have a special place in my heart though. Something about that song.

    "America" is one of the greatest works of American song. Those fucking lyrics.

    My sister and I discovered in the late 90s or so that the Macarena dance goes perfectly to Cecilia B-)

    That (what I think is a) tuba on "The Boxer" gives me chills every time.
